Housing Associations & Affordable Homes
In today’s environmentally-conscious world, Housing Associations have an enhanced awareness of the environmental issues surrounding affordable housing development, precision-engineered products, and quality-assured building methods.
Deeside Timberframe has an enviable track record of success in partnership working with Housing Associations the length and breadth of the UK, providing affordable housing that supports the government’s vision for sustainable communities.
On a practical level, planning and fiscal policy favour our commitment to greener development. Deeside Timberframe is one of the few Timber Frame manufacturers to provide an accredited Chain of Custody; evidence that the timber used comes from a sustainable, managed forest. In addition, our Timber Frame designs enhance the whole-life energy efficiency of residential and commercial developments.
There is no more sustainable building material than timber, which is why it has a significant role to play in helping to protect the local and global environment. In particular, Timber Frame has the lowest CO2 cost of any commercially available building material and a typical 100 square metre, two-storey, detached timber frame home built to the latest Building Standards saves about 4 tonnes of carbon dioxide compared to an equivalent masonry house. In addition, higher energy efficiency produces significant carbon savings in each home’s day to day use, as well as financial benefits from lower running costs*.
